Theft robbery

Armed robbers attack Ashanti Gold

The AshantiGold football club was attacked by armed thieves while returning to Obuasi after a Ghana Premier League match against Hearts of Oak in Accra. The thief opened fire, but fortunately no one was hurt on the bus. "We were attacked by armed robbers far from Accra in ASIN Endwe,” the club said on Monday. “The thieves fired three bullets into the windshield while the team driver was involved in a gruesome firefight.” Fortunately, no one was hurt. The whole team is safe in Obuasi."

Ashgold, who has struggled this season, lost to Phobia on Sunday night at the Accra Sports Stadium. Daniel Afrier Barnier found his goal when he scored to win 2–1. The striker, who had not scored since 16 January, converted a penalty 12 minutes into the first half to take the lead. The lead lasted 13 minutes as the Pitmen equalized thanks to Amin Adams headbutting after a great match against Yau Arnor. Arnor is alive and causing problems with the Hearts, but the solution is not a good one. He missed several good opportunities before Barnier stunned Ash gold for the second time. Barnier scored with a powerful shot from outside the area, giving Hearts three points to get them back on track. Ash gold is 4 points above the relegation zone after the loss.
